Monday- Friday, flexible rates and hours. 7:00 am – 6:00 pm; Green Gate has designed our astronaut camp so different aged students will focus on different  program components. Each component is age appropriate. Our goal is to both entertain and educate. Students can attend one or all nine programs. We promise you will not hear your child say “I am bored at camp! and “We do  the same stuff everyday!” Forty one summer programs have taught us children love to explore rather than sit and listen or read, find pretending they are someone else, somewhere else is exciting, and enjoy self-directed, hands-on activities opposed to teacher instructed. Students of all ages 12 months to 12 years love adventure. Our experienced summer staff  is comprised of Green Gate teachers eager to explore the universe with your astronaut (child).                                                                                                                                         Programs include: Labeling the Stars and Mapping the Heavens,  Designing and Building a Space Station, and  Building and Launching  Rockets. For the nine weeks of summer, students will be encouraged to think like an astronaut while snacking on astronaut treats. Campers will enjoy visits from a USAF Pilot, an Astronomer, and an Aeronautical Engineer, and take field trips to see a real Moon Rock, our Planetarium, and Maxwell AFB. Our certified elementary teachers will continue to lead spelling bees and math bingo games and build writing skills by encouraging Astronauts to journal. We will continue to use our vintage game room including foosball, air hockey,  Ping-Pong, and others.
